Job Title

Chief of Staff - Be our CEO's right hand (wo)man!

About

REGENT is building the first electric flying machine that will transport commercial passengers.  With a vehicle that never flies higher than a few meters off the water, we unlock the ability to fly twice as far as an electric aircraft, and certification by maritime authorities which will let us fly first passengers within 5 years.  

We are actively hiring passionate team members who can help us get our vehicle, the Seaglider, to market as quickly and safely as possible. We are backed by the world’s best investors: the same investors who are behind SpaceX, Palantir, Boom Supersonic, and more. We have nearly half a billion dollars in provisional orders from some of the industry’s largest operators, and are ready to hit the ground running.

Working at REGENT, you’ll be in a fast-paced environment with daily challenges to overcome and opportunities for growth. Your coworkers are passionate about building zero-emission, high-speed Seagliders that will revolutionize coastal transportation. Our small team works collaboratively and across disciplines to safely marry the latest technologies from aerospace and nautical engineering. REGENT offers competitive benefits including healthcare, dental, and vision plans as well as an employee equity incentive plan.

Description

We’re looking for a creative, multi-talented, and energized Chief of Staff to be the right hand of the CEO and help scale REGENT from 10 to 100 employees. Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be simultaneously responsible for (1) managing the operations of our rapidly growing organization, (2) leading scoping and execution of special projects, and (3) independently solving problems to streamline decision making for the CEO.  You will directly support the CEO in the management and expansion of organizational operations, strategy, and the implementation of REGENT’s business model – all while communicating this work to the REGENT team, customers, and investors.

This role requires scrappiness, grit, creativity, and drive – the CEO will dispatch and rely upon you to execute on REGENT-critical tasks with minimal oversight.  You will encapsulate the direction that drives the whole REGENT team forward, while also acting as the glue to ensure effective communications and execute on schedule. This role has a direct track to corporate leadership.

The Chief of Staff will assist the CEO’s management of communications, with support from the Communications team. You will oversee an ever-changing set of responsibilities that ensures the CEO has visibility into critical organizational issues.

This is not an EA role. You’ll have the opportunity to own projects end-to-end, deliver mission-critical results, and substantively impact the future of REGENT.
